This vigorous and completely hardy perennial produces stout stems carrying several umbels of yellow-eyed, pink-mauve flowers. In good moist soil these plants can grow to cabbage-sized proportions!
Primula seeds may be sown at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. Best germination temperatures are between 10 and 15 degrees c. (e.g. a cool, northerly window sill) please note: temperatures exceeding 15 c can prevent germination, and above 20 c expect very little germination as most seeds will go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
